NFPA 557: Standard for Determination of Fire Loads for Use in Structural Fire Protection Design
|Item # 55712|
First Edition! Use the 2012 NFPA 557 to assist in the determination of fire loads for use in calculations of the performance of structures in a fire.
The 2012 NFPA 557: Standard for Determination of Fire Loads for Use in Structural Fire Protection Design is a brand new document that provides a methodology for the determination of the fire load and fire load density to be used as the basis for the evaluation and design of the structural fire performance of a building.
Developed in response to a request on performance-based design initiatives in the area of fire loads, this Standard covers:
- Design fundamentals
- Development of fire loads
- Occupancy-based fire load density
- Survey method-based fire load density
- Documentation, inspection, and maintenance
Five annexes provide additional clarification of requirements. A valuable tool for architects, designers, engineers, and researchers. (Softbound, Approx. 22 pp., 2012)
